MOSQUITOS IN SMITHVILLE

The recent rains combined with warmer temperatures have created the perfect breeding ground for mosquitos. Besides being a nuisance, many citizens are concerned about the threat of the Zika virus --> http://www.texaszika.org/. In response, the City will begin spraying all roads and alleyways twice a week in the evening hours. We are still using “Evoluer 30-30” mosquito repellant which is mixed with an oil surfactant and delivered by a truck-mounted ...mister / sprayer (MSDS is available below). It takes approximately 5-6 hours to spray the entire town. The manner and method in which the City dispenses the mosquito repellant solution complies with all regulatory requirements governing its use and does not present a significant hazard to humans. Click on the following link for some interesting facts about mosquitos--> http://www.megacatch.com/mosquitofacts.html. In the meantime, citizens can help do their part by keeping tall grass mowed and removing commonly overlooked breeding spots that can hold water that includes old tires, clogged gutters, abandoned tubs or buckets. A good mosquito repellant is also advised if going outdoors in the late afternoon / evening. Cloves inserted in lime halves also works to repel mosquitos. Feel free to call me at City Hall (512) 237-3282 if you have any questions or need additional information. r/
